About Me

I am a knitter and crocheter and love to design when I get a chance. I am known as the crazy cat lady with 3 dogs. I am a mother to 3 of my own and step-mother to several. I am also a grandmother.

Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

Join the Textured Circle Shrug Knit-Along!

From the Lion Brand Notebook, web page-http://blog.lionbrand.com/2009/04/30/join-the-textured-circle-shrug-knit-along/.

Our last knit-along of the
Cable Luxe Tunic, was a big hit, and we’re ready to start another one! This time we will be working on a very special pattern — the Textured Circle Shrug from the book Glam Knits! We’re so excited to offer you this pattern for FREE, courtesy of North Light Books.

Knit-alongs are a great opportunity for people all over the world to connect on the blog and work together on their own versions of one particular pattern — it’s a chance to learn, make new friends, and expand your knitting abilities by helping each other through the pattern.

Our KAL host will be none other than the shrug’s designer, Stefanie Japel! Stefanie is the author of Glam Knits and Fitted Knits (click the titles to see/purchase the books). She also runs a great blog, Glampyre.com. Please introduce yourself, tell us about your skill-level, and where you’re from!

Stefanie’s first post will be next Thursday, so download the free pattern and collect your supplies! There’s no need to sign up. Just follow along with the blog and chat with us here, on Ravelry, or on Flickr — work at your own pace, share your pictures and thoughts, and have fun. We look forward to knitting along with you!

This is beautiful, I am planning on knitting this in a cotton ease so that I can wear it most of the year here in Canada, as we do have 4 seasons here. It can also be layered as well and should look lovely.
